CALGARY -- Canadas cross-country ski team is poised to make Olympic history next month. While Canadian women have stood on the Olympic podium in the sport, a Canadian man never has. Led by Alex Harvey of St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., and Devon Kershaw of Sudbury, Ont., that drought could end on the Psekhako Ridge in Sochi, Russia. The hard goal of Canadas cross-country team is to claim at least two medals in Sochi. Its the men who have the best chance at winning them this time. "I really feel if this team doesnt get two medals Ill feel a bit of disappointment or maybe we did something wrong," Canadian head coach Justin Wadsworth said. "That doesnt mean were incapable of four or five medals. "This is an amazing team. We could do better than two medals. We could blow other teams out of the water if everything comes together." The 11 skiers wholl represent Canada in Sochi were introduced Tuesday at an elementary school with six being present for the announcement. Harvey, Kershaw, Ivan Babikov of Canmore, Alta., Daria Gaiazova of Banff, Alta., and Perianne Jones of Almonte, Ont., were in Europe and en route to a World Cup event in Poland. Chandra Crawford and Jesse Cockney of Canmore, Torontos Lenny Valjas, Graeme Killick of Fort McMurray, Alta., Heidi Widmer of Banff and Emily Nishikawa of Whitehorse will join their teammates in Italy next week for pre-Games training. Cockney, Killick, Widmer and Nishikawa claimed their Olympic berths at last weeks trials in Canmore. They, along with Valjas, will make their Olympic debuts while the rest of the team has previous Games experience. Harvey won two races and finished in the medals four times in this seasons Tour de Ski, which is a gruelling series of 10 races spread over 16 days and three countries. Harvey and Kershaw finished first and second, respectively, in the series opening race. "I feel like our team is in a really good place," Wadsworth said. "We started out slowly this year. The results werent good early and weve built and built. I feel like were in a place where were building still in confidence. We havent peaked out in any way shape or form. "I feel like the whole team is starting to rise and its how we wanted to time it." Wadsworth is married to Canadas Beckie Scott, whose bronze at the 2002 Winter Games was eventually upgraded to gold when two Russians ahead of her were disqualified for doping. Scott was the first North American woman to win an Olympic medal in cross-country skiing. Scott and Sara Renner combined for team sprint silver in 2006 before Scott retired. Canadas cross-country skiers were shut out of the medals at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C., although the men posted seven top-10 finishes. Harvey and Kershaw were fourth in the team sprint and Babikov fifth in the 30-kilometre event. Kershaw was fifth and an agonizing half a second from the podium in the 50-kilometre event. Harvey and Kershaw won world championship gold in 2011 in the team sprint. The mens sprints are fertile ground for Canada, but Babikov is also a contender in distance events. Those three and Valjas also give the Canadian squad a strong mens relay team. Medal prospects are thinner on the womens side, although Gaiazova and Jones won World Cup bronze in a team sprint in Sochi last year. Crawford, the 2006 Olympic womens sprint champion, is a wildcard. The womens sprint Feb. 11 will be a skate-ski race again as it was in 2006. The womens sprint in 2010 was a classic race and not Crawfords forte. The 30-year-old is more in her element in skating races than in classic, the striding technique requiring more finesse and less power. But Crawford has struggled first with injuries and then burnout since 2006, to the point where she cut her 2012-13 European racing season short and returned to Canmore. She trained on her own last summer instead of joining the national team at training camps. The 30-year-old isnt shouldering the same weight of expectation she did prior to 2010. "Its so different than Vancouver. Its not our Games. We have to . . . there was more of a have-to feeling," Crawford said. "Just the amount of interest was hard to process as well. "This feels like a real gift and I really appreciate the opportunity." Cockney is the first athlete of Inuit descent on the Olympic cross-country team since sisters Sharon and Shirley Firth raced in their fourth Winter Games in 1984. Cockneys father, Angus, is Inuit. Cockney was born in Yellowknife and learned to ski there before his family moved to Canmore. "Its great to have a strong connection to distinct people," the 26-year-old said. "You kind of feel a little bit more unique and for sure a different experience growing up. "My dad was a cross-country skier at a high level when he was younger and he got my sister and I involved when we were quite young. We had ski trails behind our house when we lived in Yellowknife all the way to the nordic centre. "A lot of dark, cold days in Yellowknife, cross-country skiing in the middle of winter, but that hardened us up and made us stronger." Killick beat decorated Paralympian Brian McKeever out for a spot on the Olympic squad by winning the 30-kilometre event and finishing second to McKeever in the 15k at trials. McKeever was eighth in the 30k. McKeever, from Canmore, is a legally blind skier and winner of 10 Paralympic medals who qualified for Canadas 2010 Olympic team. He was poised to become the first Paralympian to compete in a Winter Olympics, but the teams coaches decided to enter four other skiers in the 50k and not McKeever. The 2014 Olympic cross-country ski competition opens Feb. 8 with the womens 15k race. Delano Hill Jersey .Y. -- A month ago, Syracuse was unbeaten, ranked No. Simeon Thomas Jersey . 25 against Miami. Hillis left Browns Stadium about two hours before kickoff, a decision that has led to speculation he was upset over ongoing negotiations with the club on a contract extension. http://www.cheapseahawksjerseyssale.com/?tag=david-moore-jersey-sale .A caravan greeted the former Boston Red Sox pitcher at the airport and took him to a public park in Santo Domingo, where a crowd lined a 19-mile stretch of highway to catch a glimpse of him.Once at the park, Martinez went on stage accompanied by players David Ortiz and Robinson Cano as merengue music played and fireworks lit up the sky. Tre Flowers Jersey . The result was a game-winning, power-play goal. Chiasson snapped a third-period tie and lifted the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory on Monday night. Mike Davis Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings and guard Jimmer Fredette have completed a buyout of his contract, clearing the way for the former BYU sensation to become a free agent.Its been a historic season in Denver, one that is about to result in another AFC West crown for the Broncos. Denver can take the division this week by defeating San Diego on "Thursday Night Football," coupled with a Kansas City loss at Oakland on Sunday. The Broncos, who have already clinched at least a wild card berth, can also lock up a first-round bye on the AFC side of things by topping the Chargers and hoping for losses by the Chiefs and Cincinnati, which plays at Pittsburgh on Sunday. "Our goal every year is to win the division No. 1, and obviously (if you) you win your division youre in the playoffs," said Broncos coach John Fox, who returned to the sidelines against Tennessee last week for the first time since undergoing a heart procedure on Nov. 4. "Thats still our goal, always has been our goal and we still have three games and on a short week we got a division opponent coming to our place." Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning continued his run toward a record fifth MVP award with 397 yards and four touchdown passes as Denver ripped off 24 consecutive points en route to a convincing 51-28 decision over the Titans in Week 14. It was Mannings NFL-record seventh four-touchdown game this season and the high-powered Broncos also became the first team in NFL history to have four different players score at least 10 touchdowns in one season (running back Knowshon Moreno, receivers Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker, along with tight end Julius Thomas). Manning set a single-game club record with 39 completions on a personal-record 59 attempts for the 11-2 Broncos, who maintained their one-game edge over the Chiefs in the AFC West as well as a one-game lead over New England for the top spot in the conference overall. "We had a good plan," said Manning. "I thought we threw the ball well and guys caught the ball well." Kicker Matt Prater also set a record of his own, converting a 64-yard field goal, the longest in league history. "I knew I hit it pretty good," said Prater. "I wasnt sure with the cold and everything if it was going to make it. Then I saw the refs hands go up, and I cant even explain how I felt after." Before Praters record kick, Tom Dempsey (1970), ex-Bronco Jason Elam (1998), Sebastian Janikowski (2011) and David Akers (2012) held a share of the previous mark at 63 yards. Eric Decker led a stacked receiving corps against the Titans with 117 yards and a score on eight catches, while Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas added a TD grab apiece in the rout as Denver tied an NFL record by posting its third 50-plus-point effort of the season, matching the 1969 Minnesota Vikings. Moreno led the rushing attack thanks to 78 yards on 14 carries as the Broncos also set a club record for points in a single season with their Sunday total boosting their overall mark to 515. Meanwhile, the 91 plays executed against Tennessee were the most for the franchise in a non-overtime contest. The one down note was the fact that Welker, who posted 61 yards and a touchdown on five catches, did not return after halftime due to a concussion. San Diego hasnt been nearly as spectacular this season but remains in the hunt for the final postseason berth in the AFC after Philip Rivers got the better of Eli Manning once again, tossing three touchdown passes to lead the Chargers to a much-needed 37-14 victory over the New York Giants at Qualcomm Stadium in Week 14. Rivers completed a crisp 21-of-28 attempts for 249 yards without an interception in the one-sided win, which kept San Diego (6-7) a game back of Baltimore and Miami in the race for the final wild card spot in the AFC with three games to play. Rookie star Keenan Allen was on the receiving end of two of Rivers scoring strikes, while Ryan Mathews ran for a touchdown and compiled 103 yards on 29 carries. "Were one game back with three weeks to go," said Rivers of the AFC playoff picture. "Lets go and see what happens." Manning, traded for Rivers on the day of the 2004 NFL Draft after originally being chosen by San Diego with the No. 1 overall pick, was intercepted twice while managing 259 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-32 passing against the team he balked at playing for while still a college prospect. The Chargers have now won all three meetings between the clubs since both quarterbacks entered the league. "The passion of our football team was there today," said Chargers head coach Mike McCoy. "An outstanding team effort." Denver leads the all-time series with a 58-48-1 mark and has won four straight over the Chargers, including a 28-20 triumph in San Diego back on Nov. 10 when Demmaryius Thomas caught three TD passes from Manning and the Broncos defense recorded four sacks.dddddddddddd. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Denver has won 10 consecutive games against AFC West opponents since Manning arrived in the Rockies and the club will be attempting to match the franchise record with its 11th straight victory in divisional play against the Chargers. "Youre just putting your focus as far as your game preparation on the practice field (and) in the meeting rooms," Fox said when asked about the streak. "We stress preparation one day at a time getting better every day. Weve put together a pretty good group and thats whats helped. All our focus right now is just on San Diego." Its all about the offense with the Broncos and that starts with Manning, who has already thrown for a team-record 45 touchdowns this year, a total that already ties for the fifth most in NFL history for a single season with three games to go. The smartest and most studious signal caller in the game leads an offense that averages 39.6 points per game, 6.3 yards per play, 465.6 yards per contest and has a 48.2 third-down conversion rate, all first in all of football. The fact that Denver has already set the record with four players who have 10 or more TDs on the season should tell you all you need to know about Mannings ability to spread the ball around and have everyone involved, a trait which makes it incredibly difficult on opposing defenses. "There is a progression to each play but the credit goes to the receivers for running full-speed routes," Manning said. "When you run full-speed routes youre going to have a chance to get open. I think because they know we spread the ball around, guys are expecting the ball and that makes a big difference in how they run their routes. Im trying to get the ball to those guys, get it in their hands and give them a chance to make plays." The Chargers offense isnt the Broncos and Rivers isnt Manning but both are very good. San Diego is averaging 400.5 ypg (fourth in the NFL), 6.1 yards per play (third) and also has a 48.2 third-down success mark (a tick behind Denver and second in the NFL), while Rivers has thrown for 3,882 yards, 26 TDs and a 106.4 passer rating compared to Mannings 4,522 (the most ever through 13 games), 45 and 114.5. In fact if it werent for Manning, Rivers may have even gotten some MVP consideration, thats how well he has played this season. "He definitely is a different quarterback," Broncos CB Chris Harris said when discussing Rivers. "Hes not forcing the ball and hes taking the check down to short passes other than the deep pass more. Thats something that (San Diego first-year coach and former Denver offensive coordinator) Mike McCoy has definitely brought to them. Take the easy throw and dont take the difficult one." The one glaring difference between the two teams is the lack of red-zone production for the Chargers. San Diego has a 52.1 percentage when inside the 20, just 22nd in the NFL, while Denver is at 79.0 percent, No. 1 overall. Thats why the Broncos are at nearly 40 ppg and the Chargers score just 24.3 (11th in football) despite their production in between the 20s. The trump card is Mannings playmakers. As mentioned Denver already has a record four players with 10 or more TDs with Decker threatening to join that group. Rivers biggest weapon outside the numbers is a rookie third-round pick in Allen. "We know when we played Denver the last time they made some plays," Chargers CB Richard Marshall said. "There were a couple plays that we had out there that we should have made, but we didnt make. We know that Peyton is a good quarterback, and we know they have some good receivers over there. So weve just got to practice hard, and make our plays when the plays come." OVERALL ANALYSIS McCoy knows Manning better than most after spending 2012 as the offensive coordinator in Denver but that extra knowledge probably just keeps him up at night. San Diego is the far more desperate team coming in and that might keep the Chargers competitive for a stretch but expect the Broncos, who are a perfect 7-0 on their home field, to pull away in the second half. "Its a challenge for both teams," Manning said of the short week. "(It takes) real discipline by each player to get themselves physically ready to play. "We put emphasis on the division games. There is familiarity with players and with schemes and it does make it tough to prepare but I think our guys have done a good job preparing for these division games. It doesnt guarantee anything but it does give you a better chance."
